Today is the first day of our 46th year of living together. So yesterday we had a bit of a bang-up lunch.
Started with Loire Valley sparkle and José Pizarro’s Citrus Prawn Fritters click here. The fritters were so filling we couldn’t think of a main course for a long time (and another bottle of wine).
Then Barbue Vallé d’Auge from Jane Grigson’s Normandy Cooking – Brill poached in cider with leek and apple, the liquid reduced to a sauce with creme fraiche, served with (big) button mushrooms plus roasted red peppers and black olives plus rice.
Plus Mick’s baguettes of course:
Plus a bottle of wine for pud.
It was all a bit good …
